Yesterday WWD put an item on their website that claimed: “Sources hinted that Fino’s departure could allegedly be tied to some inappropriate behavior on her part.” Tawdry! What could inappropriate mean?! Was she lying to, abusing, and/or sleeping with someone? Did she take long, boozy lunches? Was she stealing things? So many questions!
Like some of the industry rag’s recent speculations, we took this whole thing with a grain of salt — and when we went back to the link today, that line had been deleted. Hmmmm. Vogue and WWD are under the same big Condé Nast umbrella, so maybe the fashion glossy was pissed the newspaper aired their dirty laundry? Or perhaps WWD was just totally wrong. We’re not really sure, but that is kind of scandalous!
Relatedly, W‘s senior fashion and market editor Carolyn Tate Angel was fired by her new boss Edward Enninful who “has a new direction for the title and wanted to make some changes to the masthead as a result.” Ouch.
